Fox announced today that The Four: Battle For Stardom has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes just hours ahead of tonight's first-season finale, where the singing competition will crown its first-ever champion.

Since its premiere earlier this year, the new series has been a solid performer for Fox on Thursday nights in the 8:00pm time slot. While not quite as formidable as its big-name scripted competition such as The Big Bang Theory and Grey's Anatomy, its ratings have made it the network's top new reality series debut in a number of years.

The Four is a vocal competition that starts out with four pre-selected finalists as chosen by producers during earlier auditions. Each week they fight to keep their spot, as hungry challengers perform for a panel of judges and a live audience to earn their right to battle it out for one of the spots.

Look for Season 2 of The Four to premiere as early as this summer.
